The following is quoted from the above site.
“Upon their return from combat, veterans face what is called Post Deployment Transition (PDT), which is
the enormous challenge of transitioning back to civilian life. Dealing with challenges that can range from
battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), receiving VA health benefits, or facing financial hardships,
our nation’s heroes often become overwhelmed.
To combat these problems, our organization has established The G.I. GO Veterans Transition Center.
Located in the Newark City Hall, G.I. GO helps by offering Transition Assistance to our veterans, giving our
brave men and women the aid they need upon their return home so they can get back on their feet. The G.I.
GO Fund accomplishes this by implementing new and unique programs, as well as supplementing existing
efforts to assist our veterans through this challenging process.
The Transition Center serves as a hub to connect Veterans and their families to the much needed support
they deserve during PDT.”
G.I. Go Fund is another excellent resource for veterans to receive help with the challenges of transitioning back to a healthy, happy, and productive civilian life. My blog now has a direct link to this site along with many other resources for veterans and loved ones interested in gaining awareness of life after war issues and support.
